Front Subframe/Control Arm Hardware Kit, BMW - E60 M5, E63 M6
Front Subframe/Control Arm Hardware Kit - E60 M5, E63 M6
When removing the front subframe, such as for rod bearing replacement, new hardware may be desired. It's not required and there is typically no issues with re-using these nuts and bolts for re-assembly. But sometimes new hardware is needed and this Kit is a complete set that covers the front subframe, wishbones, and tension struts*.
* - this kit does not include the outer ball joint nuts. To remove the subframe, you can leave the control arms connected at the wheel hub and only remove the inner bolts and nuts. With this method there is no popping of ball joints and no risk of damage to ball joint boots. A link to new nuts is under Related Items below, if you need them.
